. but these are the numbers that are really bearing down on the gop nominee. these are mitt romney's likability numbers in six key battleground stat states. topping our political headlines, mitt romney going after president obama on foreign policy today. in his weekly podcast, romney said the president is fumbling his response to events in the middle east. >> this week, when president obama was asked about the recent disruption and chaos and violence in the middle east, he said that these were merely bumps in the road. that casual assessment of shocking events reveals that the president really doesn't understand the gravity of the challenges that we face in the broader middle east. >> meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad, it takes aim at romney's experience at bain capital, spotlighting workers who said they lost their jobs because governor romney was more concerned about short-term profits than creating jobs. >> people need to know what mitt romney did to miriam, indiana, in 1994. >> you don't just come in and take everything everybody's got and destroy a business. i mean, that's what they did.
that this election comes down to all the plans that governor romney has. and actually, i think his economic plan is pretty clear. i think it probably comes down to a group of voters who might have voted for president obama the first time, but for whatever reason, they're still undecided. they already know what president obama did his first term. they didn't like it. the question is, is he going to kind of change gears and do something different? be a little more of the type of president who will reach across the aisle. for some reason, he hasn't closed the deal with these voters. that gives governor romney a great opportunity. >> matt, you say the president hasn't closed the deal with voters. he's ahead in nine different polls -- >> but my point, craig, is this. is that if he had all the voters right now, today, that he had in 2008, this thing would be over. but he doesn't. those who are still undecided and many of those polls you cite, even though i could quibble with most of them, many show the president under 50%. there are voters who voted for president the first time, but they're not with h
state in the last three or four elections. a poll among likely voters that has mitt romney down eight points. the trend in polling in that state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colorado looks like a toss up. nevada. ohio, by the numbers does not and i would say and we've talked about this, without ohio there are scenarios mitt romney can be elect elected president in terms of winning 270 electoral votes. he needs ohio or i needs to find a way in some combination of wisconsin, iowa, michigan or pennsylvania. >> before i let you go, jeff, jump in here as well. paul ryan has spoken out on that incredible missed call at the end of the packers/seahawks game. the nfl is saying they stand by the call, at least roger goodell is under a lot of pressure. this is paul ryan in cincinnati. >> going to start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a b
to disavow the statement means they ultimately agreed with governor romney. but i think what bogged down, to be honest -- >> let'set pastthat >>e teacnd c back to the things the president talked about today, iran. again, close to a nuclear weapon. supporting terrorism around the world. syria, up in flames. the president calling the step down, assad, seemingly nowhere ra fnghi oln. wn let's take a step back and evaluate where we are in the world. there's a sense things are a little mess? >> do you think the american people want a third war? this is a question that the president obama responded on "60 minutes." is governor mn rlly epoo wh iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> what would he do on iran. >>hatoverr romn's er, is a weak posture in the region makes war more likely. let me be specific on that. if we continually broadcast as we have over the last several years that the military oion is the -- is something the u.s atee communic
to this poll in ohio. let's gather around the water cooler to watch ann romney sitting down with jay leno. mrs. romney shared some secrets of her 43 year marriage to mitt, including the thriftiness of a man worth an estimated quarter of a billion dollars. ? would you say he's frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> cheap? really? >> yeah. do you want to know what he does when we leave the house? he turns off the hot water house. do you know wlae does -- >> he turns off the hot water heat sner. >> when we come back, he forgets that he's got to turn the hot water heat other and he says cold showers are not that bad. >> talk about the significance of if he gets elected being the first mormon president. >> well, you know, i love the fact that we have the first african-american president, that that means to me that we're leaving prejudices behind. i would hope that if mitt were elected we would see more of the same. that prejudices are being left behind. >> i thought you said you'd like to see more of the first african-american president just to see -- >> no, get it right. >> if elected as first lady, what w
insured. >> and here's some numbers, larry, that show you why that is mitt romney's message rather than tax cuts. you can't compare in the state of ohio where a new york times cbs poll shows mitt romney down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the economy, 6 in 10 voters, nearly 6 in 10, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe th
on october 11th between vice-president joe biden in connecticut. mitt romney and president obama are down for the weekend getting ready to square off in denver for the first of three presidential debates on wednesday. that's the latest from this chunk of the campaign trail. let's send it back to you. >> okay. ron mott. bob seger music background music there. >>> in today's strategy talk, president obama and mitt romney head into wednesday night's debate with the president leading in the latest polls in all nine battle ground states. at the same time, governor romney's favorability rate rgz in the low 40s which is almost 10 points lower than president obama's and three points lower than former president george w. bush at this point. voters in several swing states also say they believe president obama cares more about the needs and problems they are currently facing. this is a snapshot here of florida, ohio and pennsylvania. when you look at which candidate voters think will implement policies favoring the middle class, president obama comes out ahead of governor romney in those same three
, the romney campaign is running no ads whatsoever in pennsylvania. mr. romney is down 12 points in "the new york times" poll this week. pennsylvania is not in play. i guess that's why tonight he'll head up to battleground massachusetts. yes, another fund-raiser. this time with the president of the new england patriots, son of the patriots owner. good thing that strike is over. could be a bit awkward collecting 75 grand a plate. if you're wondering why mitt romney isn't complaining in, say, florida, it may be that mitt romney never, ever wants to cibo se see boca raton again. case in point, vice president joe biden in boca raton this afternoon who had a quite different view of the 47%. >> these people are fighting back with every single thing they have. i don't sense any sense of dependency. they're just looking for a little opportunity, a level playing field, a fair shot. my dad used to say, joey, i don't expect the government to solve my problems but i do expect them to understand my problems. >> did i mention that mitt romney will be fund-raising up in chestnut hill? let's get to our hand
speak of have daunting numbers for mitt romney. down, trailing the president by ten points in ohio. nine points behind the president in florida. both states he desperately needs. that's why romney is here in ohio today. but so is the president. dueling rallies in the battlegrounds. together for the first time in more than a month, mitt romney and paul ryan looking to stop the esident's lead in ohio. no republican has won the white house without it. in front of that ohio crowd, what appeared to be a sudden shift from romney, in one of his key arguments. after repeatedly saying president obama raised taxes during his first term. >> the president has now raised taxes on the middle class. he's raised taxes on middle-income americans. >> reporter: suddenly, romney was saying the president hasn't raised taxes. >> he has one, new idea. one thing he did not do in his first four years. he said he's going to do in the next four years, which is to raise taxes. >> reporter: romney's comments made immediate headlines that the president has not raised income tax rates in his first term. he is proposin
candidate has ever become president without carrying ohio. recent polls show romney is down in the state by anywhere from 4 to 7 points against the president. so he's not doing great in ohio but he's faring well financially after a trip to los angeles over the weekend. romney brought in $6 million in just one night at a fund-raiser in beverly hills where about 1500 people paid up to $50,000 each to see the candidate speak. ann romney ran into a little trouble when her plane had to make an emergency landing this weekend. she is safe and sound but her husband was naturally a little bit nervous especially because he cannot figure out why airplane windows don't go down. romney told the "los angeles times" that's the biggest problems with a plane in trouble is you can't get anymore oxygen on the plane because the windows do not roll down. obviously one of the many reasons that airplane windows don't open is because at that altitude, there's not enough oxygen to get passengers any air. we're back with more bill after
up in mitt romney's life. >> i'm a cool down to earth dude person. >> he paid an effective tax rate of 14%. >> the 14% mitt romney paid is less than the average american. how did he claim such a low rate? he claimed 47% of americans of dependants. >> when i say that i was just cashing. ha, ha ha. >> rich white laughter, rich white laughter. >> if you are one of the 5% of undecided american voters it's okay to admit you just don't give a [ censor bleep ]. >> i guess some of us are harder to please. before you get our vote you're going to have to answer some questions. >> what more information does someone need to make this choice? >> when is the election? >> what are the names of the two people running? and be specific. >> who is the president right now? is he or she running? because if so experience may be something we should consider. >> if i want to see a bunch of ignorant jack [ censor bleep ] talking about the election i'll watch fox and friendses. >> if you say something like that and you are not challenged it becomes a double miles you can "actually" use. but
at fastreliefchallenge.com. >>> if mitt romney goes down to defeat, there is supposed to be a silver lining for paul ryan. namely that he'll immediately become one of the front-runners if not the front-runner for republican party's next presidential nomination in 2016. after all, ryan is a rock star on the right. ask a conservative to diagnose what's wrong with the romney campaign and you'll hear variations of the same refrain over and over. let ryan be ryan. of course, it's no mystery why romney isn't heeding these calls. ryan's policy ideas may be gospel on the right but when it comes to general election voters, they're problematic, so ryan has been muzzled and forced to play a role he wasn't cut out for. generic vice presidential nominee. this could reap ryan's benefit after the election. conservatives are itching to see and hear more of him. if romney loses, ryan can say, hey, guys, i was trying to be a team player. i was as frustrated as you. next time let's run the kind of campaign we want to run. in the 2016 heavyweight will thus be born. but there's another possibility, too,
're fully expecting a 90-minute attack aimed at tearing romney down. mr. obama's traveling press secretary is joking about the whole attempt to lower expectations saying well, he could just fall right off the stage. the president is up in basically all of the most recent polls. gallup has him at 50 to 44%. reuters has him up by 7 and even fox news has him up by 5. even some top romney officials are admitting he's a lousy candidate! according to politico this morning, republicans even some of those working for romney say the real problem is not the polls or the gaffes or the leaked 47% remark, it's just mitt romney. they say he's a great businessman but when it comes to leading a political campaign, he is just, plain unnatural. and planned parenthood is stepping up its attacks against the romney campaign. this week, voters in virginia are getting fliers in the mail warning romney would turn back the clock for women. it also highlights his plan to eliminate federal funding for planned parenthood. we're back with more
action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. if you have an opinion, you better back it up. >>eliot spitzer takes on politics. >>science and republicans do not mix. >>now it's your turn at the only online forum with a direct line to eliot spitzer. >>join the debate now. >> eliot: this week marks the annual clinton global initiative conference featuring speeches and panels from some of the most prominent panels in the world. one of those panels was titled women in the economy. joining us now is sheri blair who has had a distinguished career in england, and is the developer of your foundation. thank you for being here. >> it's delightful to be here. >> eliot: give us a scope of your foundation. >> we try to help people particularly in the middle east africa, and asia expand and grow their businesses so they can help themselves their families, and the wider community. i strongly believe a woman who has economic
chimed in. romney is down eight points against obama in ohio in the latest "washington post" poll. in that is bad news because of the fact that no republican candidate has ever taken the white house without care rig the state. but team romney still thinks they are within the margin of error. they are also hoping that ryan can save the ticket. as for president obama, he is dolling out plenty of money in ohio. this is something we see every four years as presidential candidates pay particular at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and it has the largest loan in the history of the u.s. small business administration. we are back with more bill press live at the break. and as always we are in chat at current.com/billpress. all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and >>you just think th
with that, mr. romney is not early in the game anymore and two all your polls are going down, down, down. and you're in big trouble. we'll take a look at the polls and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, let's start out with the latest today's current news update, lisa ferguson standing by in los angeles. good morning lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. it is a pretty light day on the campaign trail for president obama. he has just one event in virginia beach. mitt romney though is sticking to his new campaign strategy of getting himself out there as much as possible. he is also in virginia this morning speaking at the exact same time as the president but from springfield. he then heads to a fund-raiser in d.c. and another event in pennsylvania. romney is coming off three separate interviews last night with three separate television stations. that all went in three very different direction. romney talked everything from character assassination to his massachusetts healthcare reform an
the punches? >> reporter: at a pre-debate rally in denver, romney seemed to down play reports that his campaign has prepped him with zingers to go after the president. >> it's not so much winning or losing or the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. it will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. >> reporter: romney aides say the gop nominee is adjusting debate tactics away from what worked with a handful of opponents on stage to a more one-on-one approach. >> there's one person on stage. it's done three nationally televised head-to-head debates in a general election format. that's been president obama. governor romney hasn't. >> reporter: during the primaries romney demonstrated he can stumble. as he did trying to bet rick perry big money at one debate. >> rick, i'll tell you what, $10,000? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: but romney is no debate lightweight here taking down newt gingrich's idea for a moon colony in florida. >> if i had a business executive come to me and say they wanted to spend a few h
voters this will be his chance to cut through the noise and speak directly to voters. >> governor romney down at least in nine recent swing state polls. most regard wednesday's debate at his last best chance to win over voters. how is his message or perhaps even his tone. how is it going to be different wednesday than what we've seen and heard so far? >> look, i mean i think he's going to get a chance to speak directly to voters. he's going to talk about this is a clear choice in this election. do people want a romney/ryan ticket that is going to look to create prosperity and jobs and upward mobility for americans? or do they want more of the past four years that they have seen, which hasn't been very bright and it's been obama's failed economic policies that haven't been working. so i think this is great opportunity for governor romney to outline his plans. i don't think wednesday is a make-or-break night. i think he'll do great and i think you'll see the numbers in the polls tighten. >> i want to call your attention to some critics of the campaign on the right and the left. on fox news
in colorado last night. he's hunkering down with the senator playing obama. you won't see much of mitt romney until wednesday night. same thing for the president. he's in nevada. he'll fly to denver on wednesday. he's got senator john kerry playing mitt romney in the debate preps. the president did have a chance to talk to a few people. he delivered some pizzas to the local obama for reelection campaign office out there. very nice of them. delivering pizza to the workers. he also talked about not getting out much. take a listen. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> wow, wow. this is john. he's doing his homework. >> also you have some new polls for us. where are we seeing the candidates now? >> nationally, this race is extremely close. four polls came out yesterday over the last 4 hours. let's talk about ours. cnnorc.com. 47 for mitt romney. that three-point advantage for the president is -- what is the key issue on wednesday night in this is about domestic issues. take a look at the economy numbers. about as close as you can
. it comes down to who's got the energy behind him. >> does mitt romney need to hit it out of the park? is this going to be one of the seminole moments in the campaign? >> i think there are a lot of moments. i think it's cumulative. i think people more and more believe that president obama has the right message. and clearly he's got a lot of energy in terms of his volunteer base tout there. >> carol simpson was on here yesterday and fascinating. she moderated the debate between bush, clinton, perot. here's her analysis of what's important. >> i'm going to upset some people now, but debates are more about style than substance. the advantage of being a moderator is that people told me what they thought about the debate after the debate. and the things they told me were things like why did george bush look at his watch? where did he have to go? why was he anxious to get out of there? and people tell me now that they want to see how they do. they don't want to hear. i think they've heard a lot about the economy. and they're not interested in the minutia. >> governor, let me get your take o
the two candidates barack obama is going to win. >> mitt romney's numbers are down in key swing states. and let me play for you what was said yesterday by former -- by ohio governor john kay sick about those polls. >> in these polls don't even pay attention to them. the numbers you just cited are numbers i didn't pay attention to on my own numbers because it depends when you ask, it defends how you ask, it depends what the sample is. look, i think this is very close out here. >> governor, three polls in swing states in just a couple of days. they all show the movement 2re7 trending away from mitt romney, toward barack obama. is there something an internal polling in the romney that's telling them something different, are they kidding themselves? >> well, i think that's internal to the romney campaign, i don't even know those numbers but i can tell you the two ads we just saw are engaging on the right topic for the american t voters. a business round-table last week had a meeting. our ceo said it privately and then publicly yesterday, we released a big drop, third sharpest drop in expec

tracking poll has the president opening up a 6-point lead over romney. as mitt romney fumbled his way down the campaign trail. so first this lack luster rnc convention set him back. and then he completely bungled his response to the libya situation and that didn't help. but then came the biggest mistake of all. that embarrassing 47% rant caught on tape. now, national polls are not always the best way to understand the state of the election. and for that, you've got to go to the swing states. and sorry mitt, but the pictures there are not much better. a "new york times" cbs quinnipiac poll shows that big margins exist among likely swing state voters. in pennsylvania, the president is up big. 54% to romney's 42%. he leads romney 53% to 44% in florida and in ohio, he leads by a full 10 points! 53% to 43%. the last one is really important because if history is any guide the road to th does run through ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state of ohio. no democrat has done it for o

about managing expectations. romney is down playing promises of a big tax cut and that is definitely raising eyebrows. what he could be doing is just trying to appeal to independents who are worried about getting a handle on the deficit. also president obama has been hammering away at romney's tax plan arguing it will add to the deficit. romney has called for cutting all tax rates by 20%. he also wants to eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends for families who make less than $200,000. there was an independent analysis done by the nonpartisan tax policy center and it did find that romney's plan would drop tax revenues by $5 trillion. but romney has promised he won't add to the deficit because he'll pay for any tax cuts by limiting deductions for taxpayers especially the wealthy. so this isn't really a major break from what he said before. he's just kind of shifting the emphasis, playing up a different part of his plan. >> so deductions. what deductions would mr. romney limit? >> now, that is the $5 trillion question. we tonigdon't know. he has hinted he may scale back the mort

is going down are in foreign policy by sort of a handful of points. so this is a moment for mitt romney to take advantage of that. because in every other poll number, the president seems to be heading in the other direction, ie going up. so he's trying to take advantage of that and to tell people, you know, things aren't going so well in the middle east. this is a president who hasn't been as strong as he says he's been. and wants to get some kind of advantage and some traction on that. >> and certainly, john, while he was addressing the world at the u.n. general assembly speech, if you listen closely he was responding to some of that criticism from the romney campaign. >> the president didn't break any new ground but used interesting and tough language. he's undermining israel and throwing them under the bus, the iran nuclear program is something that cannot be contained, as you know as well as i do prime minister netanyahu doubts, the israeli government is not sure president obama will follow through. the president said it will do what it must as necessary. the bigger question though,
